Citing its diverse community of Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, and Vietnamese neighbors and merchants, USA Today placed Seattle’s Chinatown/International District in the top five Chinatowns in the country.

Communities were ranked according to quality of authentic dining options, size, cultural experiences available, and whether a visitor will feel like they’ve left the United States as they explore the neighborhood. Named highlights included Hing Hay Park, the Wing Luke Museum, Uwajimaya supermarket and food court, Mike’s Noodle House, Red Lantern restaurant, and Yummy House Bakery.

San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, and Philadelphia also made it in the top five. (end)
